    We have received from Mr. Alfred R. Wallace, Old Orchard, Broadstone, Wimborne, some very showy flowering shrubs, all of which are worthy of extended cultivation. The following observations accompany the flowers: "A few of my rarer shrubs showed abundant flower-buds this summer; but we have had here two months of almost continuous drought, with intense heat and alternate cold, drying winds, most unfavourable for a good display of the flowers, which are all more or less withering before fully expanded, but I send you a few before they quite fade."
